The Governing Body of Stoke Newington School is
committed to encouraging the best possible environmental practices in order to
control and reduce the school’s direct impact on the environment.
In order to do this we
- Consider the environmental
impact of activities and the carbon footprint they create, and use these
considerations to inform decisions on school purchasing and activities.
- Follow the principles of reduce,
reuse and recycle as far as is practically possible.
- Ensure that environmental
concerns and considerations are taught across the curriculum in order to
more widely promote sustainable practices and awareness amongst students
and their families.
- Follow a school travel plan that encourages and promotes sustainable travel, using the STARS accreditation scheme (currently level Silver).
Our environmental policy exists in order to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability, to increase awareness of environmental
issues across the school and to provide clarity to all members of the school
community about their responsibilities with regard to sustainability. It further exists in order to encourage
frequent review of practices and continual improvement. You can view the full environmental policy here.
